... delegates, i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> the election four years ago wasn't about me. it was about you. my fellow citizens, you were the change. if you turn away now, if you turn away now if you buy into the cynicism that the change we fought for isn't possible, well... change will not happen. if you give up on the idea your voice can make a difference, then other voices will fill the void. lobbyists and special interests. people with $10 million checks trying to buy this election. those trying to make it harder for you to vote. washington politicians who want to decide who you can marry or control health care choice that's women should be making for themselves. america, i never said this journey would be easy. yes, our path is harder. but it leads to a better chase plais. yes, our road is longer but we travel it together. we don't turn back. we leave no one behind. we pull eachw> other up.ó3qi we draw strength from our victories and we learn from our mistakes but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon knowing promise can s.with us and we're sure

working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli
last week made no mention of military service members or the war the united states is still fighting in afghanistan. it's a point that tammy duckworth, a war-wounded veteran and illinois candidate for the house of representatives did not miss. >> when it comes to our men and women in harm's way, we have a clear choice on november 6th. last week mitt romney had a chance to show his support for the brave men and women he is seeking to command, but he chose to criticize president obama instead of even uttering the word afghanistan. >> and then there was one card the republicans kept so close to the vest that we never saw or heard any mention of it. it was as if their last two-term president never existed. maybe george w. bush was the invisible guy in the chair, but there was no missing the democrats last two-term president on wednesday night. if there was any card bill clinton was holding, it had to be a spade because he dug right into the accomplishments of the obama administration with a 49-minute workhorse, or donkey, of a speech. in fact, the new york giants could have taken some no
nomination for president of the united states. >> he wasted no time pleading with americans for patience and four more years to turn things around. did he make his case? peter doocy is live for us in washington. good morning, peter. what do you think? >>peter: in the speech, he said he is no longer just a candidate. he's the president. he said that times have changed since he first spoke to the democratic national convention back in 2004 when he was still running for senate in illinois. he also shaft night spent time rewinding even further summarizing how he thinks republicans in washington, dc, have done business, for three decades. >> all they had to offer is the same prescriptions they have had for the last 30 years. have a surplus? try a tax cut. deficit too high? try another one. feel a cold coming on? take two tax cuts, rollback regulations and call us in the morning. >> the president said his path, the alternate to the president path, will not be easy. he said he was elected to tell the truth. the truth is it will take more than a few years to solve challenges that built up over d

and also the united states congress weighed in asking for them to honor and allowing for freedom have religion. in the past couple of hours he was convicted of a much lower crime, that is evangelical actions toward fellow muslims. he was released for time served. we have to put that in larger context in terms of nuclear program and delicate game between diplomatic chess, israel and also iran. we're in the middle of september right now. just a couple weeks away from the u.n. general assembly. typically in september iran makes a gesture to show leniency. last year the u.s. hikers were released. this year they are releasing him although it seems a very, very small gesture for the amount of pressure the iranian president is going to be under when he goes to new york in a couple of weeks. >> heather: thank you very much leland. >> gregg: presidential race is kicking into high gear with the final campaign battles set to begin. president obama is in florida looking to pick up the state's treasure trove of 29 electoral votes. any moment he is xooptd to take the stage. ed henry is traveling wi
including united states. i think there is a strong platform talking about the relationship. >> would you agree it's fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak? and tonight is no different? >> sorry? what? >> i say it's always fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak. and tonight is no different. fun to hear from whether mrs. bush or mrs. obama. it's fun for everybody. >> absolutely. because you get to hear the personal stuff. you get to go inside of the white house and go up to the second floor of the white house where the family lives and learn a little bit more about the family. i think it's great having three daughters they do everything possible to make sure their daughters have a live of their own. so it's a fabulous speech. she hit a home run. we ran up the score on this one. and we still have tomorrow and thursday to go. so it's been a great convention so far. >> congressman, thank you sir. >> thank you very much. >> and coming up utah congressman and republican jason chaffin. why is he here tonight? well, he is hear to tell you next the g.o.p. possibly mad
of the united states of america, and to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. [ applause ] >> boy, she just looked great, didn't she? >> she did. you can imagine, the amount of therapy and hard work. >> oh. >> that she's had to endure to climb back from being -- she was literally shot in the head. >> in the head at close range. >> close blank range. that was a pretty pivotal time in the nation's conversation about where we stand and the tone of things. >> it was. >> what a symbol of hope she is. that was incredible. >> it was a very moving moment. >>> all right. coming up he nominated his dad, last night for another term as vice president, bo biden, the attorney general of delaware, joins us ahead here on "morning joe." former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, nbc news political director chuck todd and later maryland governor martin o'malley. up next mike allen is here with the politico playbook. but first, bill karins with a check on the weekend forecast. >> good morning to you, mika. let me help get everyone out the door thi
. there is the united states of america. there is not a black america and a white america and latino america, an asian america, but there is the united states of america. >> from the first time he took to the convention speech as the keynoter in 2004, there has been no doubt that barack obama can step into the spotlight and dazzle. four years later in denver the optics match the excitement for the presidential campaign with greek columns surrounding him in front of a crowd of more than 75,000. the democratic nominee delivered an electrifying speech. >> out of work, tough luck, you are on your own. no health care? the market will fix it. you're on your own. born into poverty? pull yourself up by your own boot straps, even if you don't have boots, you are on your own. [ cheers and applause ] >> well, it is time for them to own their failure. it is time for us to change america, and that's why i'm running for president of the united states. >> this week in tampa republicans argue that barack obama is a great talker who doesn't deliver. it frames a dilemma for a third speech at the democratic national con
, and, more outreach and bringing his message to the people of the united states. what did you think about it? about that story? i found it very interesting. >> well, i thought it was interesting, and i think some of it, certainly, is true. he'd be silly not to be worried, according to the polls, it is all within the margin of error, this election with just over nine weeks left is absolutely up for grabs. he'd be naive and he's far from that, not to be worried but i also think there is a certain amount of spin in that article and obviously it helps, with their voters. if they say, the big guy is worried and the big guy wants to campaign harder and wants even longer days, then that is saying to his supporters, you have to get out there and work even harder for this guy, because this is a real fight and as far as the argument about, well, he'll be more of a compromiser in a second term, again, he's got to say things will be better than they were, obviously, there has been total gridlock for the last two years and i don't see any signs of it and i suppose if there were a sweeping electi
of the united states. i love that you were there and got the food. >>> next question. when, however, not with the longest speech, but the longest running convention in history? and how many days did it last? the longest running convention in history? all right. i'm going to give it to you. 1924's democratic national convention. it lasted 16 days. took 103 ballots, there were first fights on the floor, and a big part of the problem was there was a catholic contingency and a ku klux klan contingency. >> wasn't that first one they ever did on radio too, wasn't it? >> oh. actually i think it was. there is another one coming up. i won't take the nerd -- no, i won't take it. i have the answer if front of me. okay, i know, i know. this one will be a -- i'll give you a fill in the blanks for this one. the keynote speaker, ann richards, at the time the texas state treasurer, and she said this about george h.w. bush. she said, poor george. he can't help it. he was born with -- >> a silver spoon in his mouth. silver spoon in his mouth. >> close. you have the other word. >> a silver foot in his
sort of balance. >> well, when the president of the united states offered a $4 trillion cut to spending, republicans pushed it away. now the president did sign into law a $2 trillion cut, that's reality. doesn't get credit for it but the president did offer a grand bargain and republicans refused to accept it. >> so then we head into the conversations about jobs, sort of this number that you talk about but i think there's a measurement that is how people feel. you can talk about bottoming out and 4.5 million jobs and the number was much bigger, et cetera, if people don't feel job secure, that's a huge problem. >> you're absolutely right. if you didn't get one of those 4.5 million jobs, you can't be happy. the economy is growing and we've added jobs. that's a reality and there are some amazing things going on in the united states. things that we should be very proud of. one of which is the creation of 4.5 million jobs but many other things, support for education going up. now the republicans want to roll that back. they want to attack pel grants. we have to tell both sides of the story a
europe the president of the united states, you've been there for four years, they can't get through one sentence without mentioning george w. bush, that's not what president obama got elected to do. most people are disenfranchised. they look at the hope, the change, the bringing the kcounty together. we're not the red states, the blue states, we're the united states. where did that go? all of that has gone out the door. >> it went out the door with some republicans in congress. >> no, but that's not the way that it operated and i think the country recognizes it's off track. i think they do want to turn around. that's the whole premise of the romney/ryan presidency, the candidacy. and that's where i think mitt romney will be the next president of the united states. we do need a turnaround, somebody who knows about jobs and the economy, somebody who knows about business. that's why mitt romney will be the next president. >> the democrats are happy to have this comparison between do you want to go back to the clinton years or the bush years? what do republicans point to? what decade of gov
of the united states and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. >> new jersey mayor cory booker is with us. some people said that was one of the best speeches he ever gave, certainly a long speech. i think he is known for that sometimes. it was a terrific speech. he really laid out sort of the accomplishments of the administration, i thought. >> with the exception of the two candidates themselves, in my opinion, because it cut through a lot of negativity you are hearing in the media about the campaign and the sound bites and it was almost like a lecture married a good baptist sermon. >> sort of like i thought like a white board, okay, let's go back to welfare reform. >> i was in the delegation and people were really taking note of how he was explaining some of these complicated topics that are so easy to demagoge and demonize and making them plain and simple and easily understood and gave it in a way that everybody could digest and come away with a deeper understanding of the truth. >> the $64,000 question is going to be does that sliver of people who are undec
you say it's unpopular doesn't mean it was unpopular. it was upheld by the united states supreme court. the supreme court upheld it the both houses of an elected congress passed it. it hasn't been overturned. >> 60% of american people want it repealed. >> because a lot of people in barber shops and beauty parlors and talk radio don't like it doesn't mean it's not good. >> 60% of the american people want it repealed. all right, guys, i have got to go, chris -- >> -- of course you do. >> i will leave you with one final thought. go ahead. >> one final thought, the message of this campaign by president obama is forward. the main spokesperson will be president clinton saying 16 years ago the economy was good. so why don't you vote now for this guy. it's ridiculous. the american people will reject it they are not doing well. they want to see governor romney in office. >> all right, guys. jacques and. >> we will see on november 6th. >> we certainly will. we agree on that, jacques. >> looking forward to it. >> thank you so much. next on the run down president obama tells g.o.p. agenda is stuck
